Dear Birding Friends and Colleagues,

 As you probably know, Ida Giriunas, an icon in the Massachusetts
birding community and a long-time director of the Brookline Bird Club,
passed away on August 20.There have been many inquiries and suggestions
regarding a fitting tribute to her contributions to the birding
community.After careful thought and many discussions, the BBC has
decided to collaborate with the Mass Audubon Ipswich River Sanctuary to
expand their bird habitat garden area in her name.Additional details can
be found on the Brookline Bird Club webpage
( The estimated cost of this
effort is $3000.

To support this initiative and honor Ida,donations can be made two ways:
